Bruschetta is one of those recipes that sound fancy and complicated but turns out to be so simple, you're left wondering, "That's it?"

All you have to do to make good bruschetta is to have a good roll of French baguette or similar type of bread. Crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside. Slice up the bread and brush it with olive oil and lay on a cookie sheet. Toast in the oven until the edges are browned slightly.

In the meantime, in a bowl mix together: chopped tomatoes, basil, minced garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil. You can modify the seasoning to suit your taste but that's all there is to it, pretty much.

You can add a layer of hummus too, like we did here, but just the tomatoes alone, especially if they are fresh and sweet from your garden, will be enough of a flavor sensation.
